Russian president press secretary Dmitry Peskov told the media on the 16th local time, in response to the United States sanctions against Russia, as well as announced the expulsion of 10 Russian diplomats in the United States and other measures, Russia will not give up reciprocity response measures, which is the most basic response. But it will all be up to the country’s leaders to decide.
On the 15th of this month, the United States announced sanctions against 32 Russian individuals and entities. In addition, since June 14, U.S. financial institutions have been banned from buying initial Russian government bonds and 10 Russian diplomats have been expelled from the U.S. The Russian Foreign Ministry said the U.S. move is not in the interests of the two peoples, and such measures will not be effective.
